Spring training is done, and the Boston Red Sox are playing the Baltimore Orioles in Camden Yards Monday.

The Sox are coming off a championship year and now they begin the long, hard 162-game slog toward October. Last season, they faced low expectations and surprised just about everyone when they won the World Series. Now that they’re champions, they face high expectations and high hopes that they can win it all again. But that’s never easy.
